Today was the first day of school. And for my son, it was just back to the routine, his friends and learning as he went to third grade at the same school he has been at since the beginning.. But for my daughter, today was a BIG step for her and for me....she went to Kindergarten! And though she was mentally, socially and overall more prepared and ready than my son was.... I can't help but need a moment.
A moment to let it sink in....my baby is no longer a baby. I know that. Kindergarten will change her as her world just got so much bigger the moment she walked into her classroom today. Though I love to see my kids grow, change and develop it is a day that requires great appreciation. Appreciation for the moments I had wit her as a baby. The days I had her all to myself. The questions she was unsure of, the innocence she will lose, the baby moments I will never get back.
So if you do not have kids or your kids are well into their school years or are grown, take a moment to reach out to the moms who are sending their littles off to Kindergarten. They need an extra text, call or hug this week!
